Dears, so nice to be parte of this community. Greetings from Italy!
Looking for hint which volume pot install. I have a spare dact in house but its 20k. Better i get a 100k,right? Then Need to order and might go for Alps Blue or TKD if Money allow?

Besides, 0.1 caps indicated in posts are too expensive or not locally available. What about One of the jantzen family? Any Will be ok or any reference for me? Thanxs

We offer a stepped attenuator upgrade that replaces both the volume and balance pots, and it also gives you a nice overlay panel on the top of the chassis to tell you what all the switches do:

Otherwise it would be a good idea to keep the volume pot 100K so the functionality of the balance pot isn't altered substantially.

I can recommend the Jantzen Superior Z cap. I've used them several times in my Bottlehead builds.
